Papadum Lentil Crisps: The Healthier Snack

Papadum, also known as Papad, is one of the healthiest snacks you can find. Made of lentils, it is a healthier alternative than stuffing on those fatty potato wafers. Make it your 4 pm snack or use it as an appetizer with dinner, Papadum is a multipurpose snack for everyone.

At Pride of India, we have a century long tradition of consuming pure and healthy foods. We source the freshest ingredients that are naturally and sustainably cultivated in order to enhance the overall health of the human body.

Our Papadum Lentil Crisps are handmade with nutrient-rich lentils and spices that are cultivated in humid and temperate areas of India. These sun-dried lentil crisps are light, easy to digest, fast to cook, and popularly consumed for their high protein, iron, as well as fiber content. That is the reason why our delicious snack has been chosen as a NEXTY Awards finalist for the Natural Products Expo East 2019!

One of the reasons behind Papadum’s popularity is that it is one ingredient that could be consumed in so many ways and comes in so many varieties. Roasted, deep fried, masala, chilli, pepper and a hundred more varieties. It is an inseparable part of Indian meals as it is light, crispy, and leaves your taste buds delighted with their crunch. 

These Papadums are easy to consume and are among the the easiest-to-cook food items. You can cook them in ways as easy as:

Place the Papadums in the microwave or in the oven on microwave safe plate and cook for about 60 - 90 seconds until crispy. Serve hot with the dressing of your choice.

Place the Papadums in a pan on stovetop or on a grill and cook on high for about 1 minute until crispy. Serve hot with the dressing of your choice.

If you love experimenting with food, here are a lot more ways you can make these healthy Papadums:

Veggie-Loaded Papadums Recipe:

Just add some finely chopped veggies like tomatoes, onions, capsicum, cucumber and even boiled corn kernels. Mix them up with our Chat Masala, and garnish it all over the Papadum. Masala Papadum has all the potential to be your next favorite snack to crunch on!

Cottage Cheese and Papadum Fritters:

Another recipe that completes your search for a delicious, yet crunchy snack is this one.

  1. First, roast or microwave a Papadum like the previous recipe; crush it, and keep it aside.
  2. Then, get some cottage cheese, crumble it, and add some of our Himalayan Black Salt and Garlic Powder to it.
  3. After that, mix two to three teaspoons of tomato ketchup in it, and form little balls of the mixture.
  4. In another cup, take some all-purpose flour and put about half a glass of water into it; mix it well.
  5. Dip the cheese balls into the flour-water paste and roll them into the crushed Papadum.
  6. Bake them in an oven until they turn golden brown from all the sides.

When done take them out, and serve piping hot with any dip you desire.
